    Hydraulic cylinder rebuilding (spare, cab etc)

    drat.... was holding out a little hope after the earlier post somewhere that they might be... just threw the video up after seeing link to it unexpectedly while still holding to that hope. maybe cut tube open then weld it back with a collar around the cut spot? just thinking out loud...

Answer is basically no. sure one could custom make a gear...... but still would be no go cause the changes would set off a firestorm in the software and put...

    LMTV as an RV in California

    hopefully that is a big over estimation. I had an all new shaft made for my rear at a driveline shop that also did a fair volume of big rigs too . Rear alone was only 600 will all new parts from scratch.

    LMTV Cab Suspension Airbags Alternative

    When you say "bags" where you planning to be buying just the sleeves from Firestone or the whole sleeve plus crimped on components (minus shock and it's parts -n-pieces) if anyone can get just the number for the rubber sleeve Im contemplating a way to crimp new sleeves onto the top and...

    Hydraulic cylinder rebuilding (spare, cab etc)

    just came across this. Previous post had mentioned that our cylinders may actually be rebuilding unlike previously assumed cause folk figured ends were welded. Poster mentioned we may be mistaken and that with a clean we may find one end is...... well like the one in below video. Running off...

    I have joined the club ! And yes I have lost my mine !

    how does the shock mount to the bottom plate with 4 holes? If recall right someone posted a pic of a thick-ish ring of rubber that was falling apart from inside their shock. Is there a ring of rubber in the bottom cup or inside the cap at top of the sleeve orrr?

    what most call a "bag" is actually a "sleeve". don't forget looks like some kind of O-Ring that sits on the bottom tube the sleeve is crimped too. Believe there is a rubber ring ( in the bottom of the cup the lower ring mounts into?) as well. Someone posted pic of their ring being worn out...

    LMTV Cab Suspension Airbags Alternative

    ahhh.. I see now.... this thread has always confused me... ok so seems the shock is attached to a separate bottom end. The bag/sleeve is crimped to its own metal ends at top and bottom? Top is a cap.... bottom a ring. Shock slides into bottom of bag/sleeve and pinned / screwed / bolted? into...

    LMTV Cab Suspension Airbags Alternative

    ??? guess we still need clarity from FloridaAKM and/or TNmogger cause your right. Makes no sense for shock not to be included. the bag is installed via a special crimp machine that exist pretty much no where but the manufacture firestone makes the bag that the unit uses is only reason that...

    Thought the Power Packer included shock but apparently does not. Suspect Firestone one in image comes from same manufacturer as one Power Packer uses... just sold thru Firestone BTW the YELLOW lettering of the firestone sleeve is important. Keep that in mind. Apparently color of lettering...

    What feature of the Steyr cab is a throw-back to the old days in the US?

    Its been looked into I think by Scott and found to be prohibitively expensive to import that? Now if you can can get pieces and parts from junk yard and get a place to cut flat glass... hmmmm? course you can also go with horse trailer, big rig, step van, vent (all the same) and save ton of...

    FYI- cover your hydraulic pump; if you have not already. Water can get in thru the brass breather. I'm going to have to bleed out mine cause I discovered this too late.
